Accommodations

Accommodations at Montreat Conference Center in the beautiful Assembly Inn, overlooking Lake Susan, are double occupancy (limited singles with an extra charge) with private baths. The Inn includes spacious lounges, classrooms, and dining facilities. Comprehensive fees include program, housing (double occupancy), meals in the Galax Dining Room in the Assembly Inn, and all field trips.

Commuter options are no longer available for Road Scholar programs.

Service animals are welcome. A service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, an individual with a disability. The ADA requires that service animals be under the control of the handler at all times. The service animal must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered while in public places unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the person's disability prevents use of these devices. In that case, the person must still maintain control of the animal. Under control also means that a service animal should not be allowed to bark repeatedly in a quiet place. The handler of the service animal may be asked to remove their service animal from the premises if the animal is out of control and the animal's owner does not take effective action to control it or the animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others.
